The hamstrings are a group of three muscles located in the back of the leg, running from the pelvis down to the knee. They allow you to bend the leg both forward and back with the help of the knee joint. Any tightness in the hamstrings can present itself in any of the following conditions:
- Low back pain
- Instability in the knee
- Hip stiffness
- Lack of mobility
Plus, hamstring tears are one of the leading injuries in various sports and activities.
